Skepticamp Fort Collins is coming Saturday, January 11, 2014 at Mulligan's Pub from 1 to 6 p.m.
Then, stay for the after party!
Sign-up for Talks
This year we wanted to leave more time for eating, drinking and making merry between talks. Some of the presentations really get discussion going, and many of us love the chance to get to know other skeptics. We have room for 40 attendees, so invite friends
We have 10 slots for presentations (15 or 30 min) this year, with breaks after every three. Please RSVP here and add the title of your talk. We can provide a laptop and AV set-up for anything you have on a jumpdrive. No word yet on Macs, but I'm sure someone will be able to bring one. Let us know if you can for those who have PowerPoint for Mac!

Choosing Topics for Skepticam Presentations
Keep in mind that talks should be geared toward encouraging discussion, unlike many other presentation type gatherings.
